Smartphones have truly revolutionized the world in more than one ways. Whereas it has definitely changed the way and the pace at which we communicate, it has also dramatically contributed to the realm of media. For instance, smartphone cameras are increasingly being used to make movies and documentaries. Now, an unnamed Syrian journalist has filmed an entire documentary about the Syrian unrest with the help of an iPhone.


iPhone has been reportedly banned in Syria mainly because it was being used by journalists and citizens to shoot and post videos of violence and unrest to the web. But despite the ban, iPhone usage continues and a number of activists have used iPhone to shoot videos of the cities like Homs, which are the epicenter of the uprising against the Syrian regime.

Now, an anonymous journalists has shot an entire film on his iPhone, the preview of which is available online. The film is scheduled to be aired on Al-Jazeera tomorrow and you can watch it here. The name of the journalist is not known precisely for the reason that journalists have been increasingly a target of violence in Syria, apparently as a result of the state’s attempt to silence all such personnel who are reporting the violence which is rampant in the country.

The film starts with the words, “I can’t tell you my name. I’ve spent many months secretly in Syria for Al Jazeera.” The journalist who shot it used his iPhone in a rather clandestine manner or his smartphone would have been apprehended. In his own words, “”I followed them on protests, I saw them demonstrate and fight and die, and I even heard their songs of freedom. This is their story.” You can read more about the documentary here on the Aljazeera page.
